    That usually depends on how old the freezer is.

    The age of a freezer may be relevant to cover against freezer breakdown, but a power cut is not a freezer breakdown. Insurance companies do try to wriggle out of claims, but food spoiled by a four day power cut is an argument you would win.
    Having said that, I doubt you'd keep a generator going for four days in a long power cut. A few stops to refuel would be OK, but unless the food is very valuable, the gennie fuel will cost more than the food it saves. And good luck claiming for that!

    Only used my generator once in anger on the home fridge and 2 X freezers and it kept them down to temperature without any problems.

    Yes, we are insured but i can do without the aggravation and hassle of going through the process of claiming.

    The wee genset pending this week, is not a lot of money and handy for other tasks. I need to check genset rating against typical power tools prior to purchase.

    3 year warranty is decent, too.

    Today I had a look at genset, no spec on Db levels, guy wouldn't let me remove product from box to view spec plate on on genset. I didn't bother with purchase.

    I have a Honda framed genie at my wee cottage, only gets used on rare occasions and starts first or second pull and never misses a beat, it's probably 20 years old. Maybe yours is a lemon or a copy Trev.
